Quick Description: Rock Video! :) This video is not intended as
an introduction to the show... it could function as one, but you
might get some wrong ideas, hehe!
I hope you enjoy the video! But most likely if you are not a fan
of Black Heaven or Van Halen... you may not. :P (haha)
Video content notes:
1 - I really enjoyed working with the footage from Black Heaven,
regardless of the difficulty of dealing with limited instrument
animation and excessive stills. This was far from an easy video
to lay out... it went through quite a few revisions.
2 - I tried to include Oji's son in the video for fun and I think
his limited appearences accent it well. Oji's wife also plays all
of her roles, as the wife/fan/angry mother. The guitar-in-the-trash
sequence seemed fitting for the later scene of "best of..." (eye
3 - Beat sync was far from easy considering how hard it is to
maintain the interest of the viewer when using stills. This video
was easy to plan, but tough to implement.
4 - There is 1% repeat footage haha.
5 - As most people are not Van Halen fans, this video will probably
not appeal to the masses... but I think viewers will enjoy it for
the pure fun factor.
6 - This video is primarily about Oji's dreams of his glory days,
and the opportunity to relive them.
7 - The intro is silent... even the audio in the anime for this
scene was virtually silent, so it's just like the original audio! :P
8 - Just realized that this is kind of a character profile... 2
1 - Couple of special effects, primarily fades.
... if I think of anything else I will add it ...
Enjoy the Video! :)
